Nestled in the misty valleys of 'God’s Own Country', Wayanad is set high on the Western Ghats. Surrounded by lush greenery and enchanting waterfalls, this destination is believed to be as old as the beginning of the New Age of Civilisation.

Wayanad, literally meaning ‘land of paddy fields’, is a very popular tourist destination that offers visitors an exciting list of places to discover and cuisines to relish. But what’s really intriguing is that this beautiful city, along with its neighbouring regions, follows a distinctive style of cooking that will surely leave you craving for more. So, if you are planning a family vacation to Kerala, ensure you visit Wayanad and try some of these excellent dishes of Wayanad, which we believe will turn your journey into a flavoursome one:

  1. Malabar Biryani: If you love a good, hot plate of Biryani, do not miss this one out. Prepared with a good amount of spices and chicken, this dish is known around the world for its tantalising aroma which will promise to make your taste buds dance with joy.
  2. Chemmeen Unda Puttu: This is one of the most toothsome delicacies of Wayanad. Chemmeen Puttu is a traditional dish, in which prawns, known as chemmeen, are stuffed in steamed cakes made of rice and grated coconut. Apart from being utterly delicious, this heavenly dish is also incredibly healthy.
